Electrical problem
2002 Chrysler Town and Country 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 63,000 miles

For a 2002 Chrysler Town & Country, there is a power draw on the battery with all switches, lights, and key off. This causes the battery to go dead after a few days.
Attempts to solve:
1. Observed 1 amp drain between negative battery cable and battery post. Drain continued with all fuses and relays removed (separately), except when the IOD 15-amp fuse was pulled, drain dropped drastically (test lamp had barely perceivable glow).

2. One non-standard component in car is an aftermarket DVD player with screen in roof. This was installed before we got the car.

It appears to us that the problem relates to the IOD circuit, but we don’t know what to do in that regard. Thanks for your assistance.
